Historic Hood River
Samuel Blythe on Mt. Hood
Samuel Blythe was a Civil War veteran, one of the pioneers of Hood River and publisher of the Hood River Glacier newspaper. Here we see him on one of the American Legion climbs of Mt. Hood in the 1920s. I did a double take when I saw his name– as he was born in 1842 and arrived in Hood River in 1877. That puts him in his eighties by this time.
